Summer is here and there’s no better time to spruce up your outdoor living spaces to ensure you get the most of the warm and sunny weather! Having a fresh and fun patio is a necessity for hosting all the activities that a hot summer brings, so we wanted to share some of the spaces that are inspiring us this season.
Let the inside out! Turning a back deck into an extension of your home’s interior is a great way to increase your square footage by giving you another place to hangout or host a party. One great way to connect indoor and outdoor spaces is to install a bar window. Put an outdoor dining table, jute rug, and some nice statement plants into the mix and voila … party time!!
An outdoor fireplace is a great use of any extra yard space you might have. While it does take some hard work to build a fireplace, you could also go the easier route with installing a fire-pit and still achieve the same intimate vibe. Get some outdoor lounge furniture, some string lights, and an outdoor rug and you’ve got yourself a cozy new hideout all in the comfort of your backyard.
What’s one way to instantly up the cool factor of any space, especially outdoors? Install a hanging chair! Throwing an oversized Kentia Palm into the equation never hurts either!
When in doubt, pillow it out! While pillows add comfort, they can also make the style of a space come together. Throwing some on the floor, on the couch, or in a chair will make a space more inviting.
If you are a beach lover, why not bring the beach to your backyard? Filling your yard in with sand will instantly create a relaxed vibe and make you feel as if you are lounging near the ocean. Acapulco chairs also add an eclectic, modern vibe.
